Evoke Envy In The Friends

laitman_938.04Question: I see that no one in the group follows the good example you want to show. What should be the example and how can one see that it is really perceived and followed?

Answer: Through envy.

Question: It does not work. They aren’t envious. Why?

Answer: It means that you are not working correctly with your friends. You have to evoke envy. There is no way that envy does not work.

You just need to find out what or whom a person can envy so that they will be unable to escape from feeling it. He can say: “It does not matter, he is a beginner, does not understand anything, and this one has been studying for 30 years, what can I do?”

It has to be done in a way to make a person jealous of any envy: white, black— no matter what. This is the only way.

Break The Wall Between Our Hearts

laitman_962.4Let’s hope that during the convention we will generate such enormous power that we can break the wall separating us from the Creator, from the spiritual world, the wall between our hearts.

Once a year, at the World Kabbalah Convention in Tel Aviv, I sit before a massive audience of several thousand people. How do I feel this sea of people? I cover it with my screen and turn it into a spiritual vessel that I appeal to. I do not see people in front of me, but I see a desire that is in internal changes, in search, in hope. I do not distinguish between faces. I feel what correction this Kli is created for, how it approaches the correction, how the Creator acts in it and rejoices. It is like a baby who is about to be born and we are impatiently waiting for him. That is how I feel this state.

I hope that we will enter the process of birth at the convention. The preparation is already done, we only need to induce the labor pains—we need internal pressure from us and external pressure from the Creator. And then it will happen.

The Only Request To The Creator

laitman_619Question: I follow you to all conventions. Sometimes this is the only force I have and only out of complete despair. I do everything you tell me, even if it makes me look funny. I do not know what to do next!

Answer: Ask the Creator. A person has nothing else. There is no one to appeal to, only to Him, He is the only one. Try to appeal to Him with only one request that you are begging for closeness with Him: “I know nothing more, I don’t want anything, and I don’t need anything! I only want to be close to You.”

Question: Why does the Creator constantly separate me and take away my strength to be with my group?

Answer: You have a very good, strong desire. However, it has not been formed correctly yet and therefore it throws you like that. I do not know what to advise you. In fact, just patience. Patience. Let the light, the Creator, work on you, one day, and another day.

I have been in this work for 44 years. Nothing but patience helped me. There is nowhere else to go.

Africa Congress

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 1/20/20

Our virtual convention for our groups in Africa over the weekend—including groups in Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Togo, Benin, Congo, Guinea, Ethiopia, South Africa and dozens of virtual connections from remote areas across the vast continent—was a living testimony of how the time has come for the wondrous wisdom of Kabbalah to be revealed to humanity.

The African people have experienced great suffering and oppression, and today’s spiritual awakening in the continent, with groups of people showing readiness to connect above all differences, was a very moving experience. I personally was moved to tears.

A significant part of Kabbalah is how new students advance much faster than the veteran students did when they started, since like newborn babies entering a family, they inherit everything the family has earned and prepared for them. This became especially evident when seeing the participation of the African friends over the course of the convention’s lessons and events.

I wish to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who prepared the event. Together, we will continue to try and open the heart of the world to connection and love.

The Creator Is Within Connection

laitman_938.02Question: During the convention we went through many things. How can we keep this so that we will not live from one convention to the next, but will multiply the experience every day?

Answer: At the convention, I tried to prove to you that when you connect you get closer to the Creator. You must clearly remember this, engrave it on your heart.

Only by connecting with each other do we approach the Creator because to begin with He is inside of our connection. That’s all.

Question: In both concealment and revelation?

Answer: Everywhere, always.

Attaining The Creator In The Center Of The Group

laitman_938.04Question: On our path, we should go through moments of hatred. If hatred is not revealed, is it a sign that we are not advancing?

Answer: We should not wait for any negative feelings. If we do not have them so be it. We just need to move toward the center of the group and persistently look for the Creator in it.

Our work is very simple. As Baal HaSulam writes in the article “Arvut” (Mutual Guarantee), the Creator brings a person to the group, places his hand on the correct path and says “Take it.”

Now in the group, we just need to increase the influence of the environment on us until we will attain the Creator in the center of the group. That’s it! There is nothing else!

We will see that the world around us is all fiction. All of it is the illusory world (Olam ha Medume). There is only the ten and the Creator within the ten. I want you to leave the convention with this thought, with this truth.

“Open For Me One Cleft”

laitman_938.04Question: Baal HaSulam wrote, “Open for me one cleft in repentance, as the tip of a needle, and I will open for you gates for wagons and carts to enter.” Is this tip of a needle what we must open for the Creator in our heart?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Who can open the opening?

Answer: The friends.

Question: What should I do in order for them to do that?

Answer: Just to want that.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 9/7/19, Part 5

laitman_595.03Question: How can one correctly accept endless gifts from the Creator without bending under the shame of receiving, how can one do it joyfully?

Answer: Give thanks and do the same to others.

Question: What is darkness?

Answer: This is what distinguishes you from the Creator.

Question: How can I strengthen my attitude to the Creator?

Answer: Do whatever you want, it will not help. You are a great hero until He pinches you. Then you will immediately start crying.

Question: How can the ten not run away from the revelation of corruptions?

Answer: By supporting each other and by praying to the Creator.

Question: Even if you came to the conclusion that it is impossible to change your nature to bestowal, a strong disbelief in the Creator is born. However, prayer is impossible, there is no strength to ask. You also do not see the point in it because of the lack of faith in the Creator. What should I do and how can I not leave the path?

Answer: Do not believe. Who makes you believe? Faith is the feeling of the Creator. It is not what you imagine to yourself: I just believe that He exists. This is not Kabbalah but religion.

laitman_597.02Question: What should be the prayer if you feel like a clump of evil and corruption?

Answer: That is great. If we all felt like such clusters of evil, egoism, envy, jealousy, meanness, and everything that possibly exists, it would be perfect. How much a person would want, if not to get rid of it, at least to paint over it a little!

This is good. It means one already has a need to change oneself.

Question: How and when we will be able to connect all of our AHP to us?

Answer: To do this, first you must have Galgalta ve Eynaim and then AHP. First of all, you must have bestowing desires, then you will be able to work with the desires to receive for the sake of bestowal.

Question: How can we not come to inaction or indifference because of annulling ourselves?

Answer: Let’s first learn to annul ourselves and then we will see. You are right, there is a question in this. The fact is that I am annulling not myself, but my egoistic participation, and ask that in its place, the Creator will give me new strength, the quality of bestowal.

Question: If concession to the friend does not lead to the greatness of the goal, should you concede to him?

Answer: If this is a ten, I do not make any calculations whether it does or does not lead to the goal. Most importantly, by conceding to the friend I move toward the goal.

How Do You Sign A Mutual Agreement With The Creator?

laitman_942Question: The Creator is the main guarantor. We sign an agreement with each other before Him with the understanding that He is behind us.

When someone in the group falls and we try to throw him a rope, but nothing happens, then we turn to Him: “You are in a contract with us, and therefore we ask you to fulfill your part of the contract. We did everything to help the friend rise, but we don’t have the strength. You are a participant in our agreement, we ask you now to pull him out.”

Do we understand correctly or not?

Answer: No. Why don’t you turn to the Creator immediately? Do you think you are capable of anything?

Remark: We think that we must put our “half shekel,” pay our price, come to the point where we are not able to do anything anymore, and then ask Him.

My Comment: In principle, it is correct. But it’s better to immediately understand that except for the Creator, no one can help anyway.

Question: How do we sign a mutual agreement in order to feel that He also participates in it?

Answer: The Creator does not participate in it, He defines it. He holds your guarantee. After all, He holds the entire system.

What does this mutual guarantee mean? In a completely closed system everyone is a guarantor for the rest. And if he does not fulfill his part, everything will collapse. Therefore, we must immediately get the Creator as a force that acts in us.

Another thing is that we can turn to Him and say: “Yes, we cannot hold this net of forces. Make it so that we understand where to do this, direct us, help, give strength! Give an understanding of what to do! Govern!” For Him it is a great joy.
